    Canadians open garage door on record-breaking snowfall as emergency called

    The depth of record-breaking snowfall in Canada has been laid bare by a family opening their garage door.

    Leigh Antle filmed the moment her husband opened the door to their house in St John’s, Newfoundland, where 76.2cm of snow fell on Friday – the most in a single day in the Canadian province.

    Mrs Antle added her eight-year-old son Conner “very much enjoyed” his day off school on Friday.

    “I’m an artist and love painting snow landscapes but this is pretty ridiculous!”
